Gajanana: The Elephant Faced Lord

One day, Goddess Parvati went bathing and asked Nandi to guard the doors and not let anyone inside until she is done. But Nandi being a very faithful and loyal attendant of Lord Shiva immediately let him enter when he arrived. Parvati thus felt that she needed someone who will remain as faithful to her as Nandi is to Shiva. She then used the turmeric she uses to bathe with and moulded it into the shape of a boy and asked Lord Brahma to pour life into it. She asked the boy to guard the doors and obeying her orders, the boy denied entry to Lord Shiva. This angered him and he cut off the boy's head. Parvati was aghast and quickly realising his mistake, Lord Shiva replaced the boy's head with that of an elephant's and that is how Lord Ganesh became iconic as the elephant-headed god, or Gajanana. Bring home this beechwoord artefact and be reminded of the glory of Indian mythology every day.
